My guess is the 3mm....they are pretty small. Smaller than the Orion plugs..

Yeah 4mm is too big, I didn't know if there was a 3.5mm set, or if it was down to 3mm.

Alright brain trust. The duo 2 17.5 overheated last weekend and end up taking out the 2.0 LPF. Got new ones in hand with the LCD programer. Run down T2007, rubber tire, Duo 2 17.5 motor, GT 2.0 LPF, last race was down to 37/98 ( small as I could go with that spur) and taking timing out of motor and esc to control heat. Got a good start point for me ( ran outdoors on a big track with no problems pulling alot more gear than this)

I say stay away from motor timing. Although it is a cool idea, Brushless motors and brushed motors respond totally different with motor timing. Keep the timing on the motor Stock, what ever that is, and let the ESC do all the work. You will have less heating issues if you keep the motor stock timing.

Hey Charlie B,

Rob down here in San Diego(Pound it). Can you recommend a program for 2wheel buggy 13.5? I've read some of the previous posts but came away with more questions.

Thanks for your help,
Rob........Oh yeah. Running the GT 2.0 LPF

Run the 110. I think the 107 has too much punch for offroad...it was a little much for my Cyclone this weekend. I would start at the punch setting at IIX and go from there. Timing always at 26*.

Good Luck Rob!

Thanks Charlie,

Is braking similiar between 110/107?

Were you running 17.5?

Rob.....

I was running 17.5, although according to Sean Williams, he had no fading at all with the 110 in his 13.5.

I appreciatte your input , but disagree with your philosophy. I at no point in my post brought up brushed motors, so why did you?? I've ran brushless for 2 years with a little sucsess ( a 3rd and a 1st in points ) I'm just having a problem going from a 180' straight to a 80' straight and geting the gearing quite right. I'm running onroad touring car with a Xray T2-007 and the SP LPF witha 17.5 Duo 2 motor. Got the LCD box ( but no zip prg.) and want to know what to do.

I bring up brushed motors because unlike brushed motors in the V 3.0, all you are doing is creating more heat and very little performance gain when you advance the timing on the motor..Take my "philisophy" as you wish.
You mentioned taking timing out of your motor, then mentioned you "overheated". This tells me you cranked the timing up on the motor...am i correct? Then you mentioned that you needed to bring the timing down to "control" the heat. Whether you get it or not, i was agreeing with you that those factors did contribute to your motor heating up. Now read my response again SLOWLY and realize what im saying. Happy new year!

Read it a couple times and still fail to see where you said anything other than don't adjust the timing and brushed and brushedless are different. I ran the set up out doors on a big track for the points championship, only finished off the podium ... never for the season. I've played with timming both ESC and motor all year to improve and get faster, now with the the new software and going inside to a short carpet course I need a different direction. Possiblliy Shawn or Adam can help me out. Thank you for your input, you are a very special person to me.
Tim

P.S. Read my post carefully I'm running a Duo 2 not V 3.0

I know I'm blind, but on my warranty card it says to keep the customer copy and mail the other half back to king golden ltd. But nowhere am I or my wife seeing a address?? Does anyone know the address where to mail your warranty card to here in the USA??

I don't know if this will help but I am also running sedan (cyclone TC) on a small carpet track (77 foot straight) on rubber tire and 17.5 with a 2.0 lpf. I am still running the old sp 17.5 but I installed the 107stock firmware last week and did some testing and I ran a 4.61 fdr and the motor temp was around 125-130f it had as much or more speed than anything else at the track and I strarted with the drrs at IX and had to back it down to VII because it was blowing the tires out of the corners (should've had better trottle control I guess) and I probably should go down another tooth on the pinion because it is no where near topped out at the end of the straight, but this might help you with a starting piont for gearing a 17.5.
